BITS OF THIS AND THAT

Leave a comment

So I got new walking shoes.  Do you think that they will encourage me to do more walking? Aren’t the rocks pretty?  They are around all of our patios.  What a wonderful piece of color and texture. I figure that I sure could use the encouragement of something colorful.  Life gets so busy that I tend to put exercise on the bottom of the list.  Then there is this heat, 101 degrees yesterday.  That  doesn’t help either along with the wind.  The wind gets so variable sometimes that all I do is run from window to window trying to adjust for the swamp cooler, or evaporative cooler as they are more often called.  When we first came out here to visit my daughter we drove up to their house in the heat of the day.  They had doors and windows open.  My heart dropped as I was sure that the house must be an oven.  Imagine my delight when I walked into a nice cool place.  Right then I fell in love with the swamp coolers.  Open windows and cool rooms.  It’s enough to spend the winters with the windows closed to the elements.  How nice to be able to spend the summers with open windows.

I’m just about finished with a table runner that I have been working on.  It is paper pieced so allows for nice sharp points.  Maybe tomorrow I’ll have it finished and can post a picture.  Then again, remember that there is life going on.  Think I need a maid and a cook.  Any takers?

I live in beautiful western Colorado. I am close to my daughter and her family. I have loved working with fibers as long as I can remember. I come from a family of women who have always created with fiber. This is a great part of the country to visit and to live in. Try it sometime.
